As we continue through this time of COVID-19 CONFINEMENT I am SO encouraged by the way God expresses His delight to you and is revealing Himself through you! As we focus one week on prayer and fasting, weeping between the porch and the altar He hastens to us in His Word. His Word, the Bible, literally glistens with hope—hope for a better day, and inspiration to live for Him in this DAY!
Yes, the Word of our Lord reminds us that we have been given a stewardship of LOVE that is higher and better than any other life purpose. He calls us to heed His warnings and walk through the doors of opportunity to higher places of connection with Him and one another! Esther was faced with a similar challenge as she faced death, and fear, in the face, and chose life & truth—Esther 4:14, 16 “But who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for just such a time as this… and if I perish, I perish.”
His truth always sets us free to be all that He has called us to be. He reminds us in Ephesians 2:6, “and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” It is here that we can see things that the world longs to see. And if we continue and do not turn back, I believe God will enable us to see a whole new Day of victory. Just like Daniel, if we “keep looking” we will see the Son of Man coming and the Ancient of Days present Him dominion, glory and the very Kingdom of God—
“I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, and He came up to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion, glory, and a kingdom that all the peoples, nations and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.” Daniel 7:13-14
ONLY God knows the future. ONLY God knows what we will see here in this world, and what He reserves for us to see in eternity! But I am convinced and absolutely certain, that as we continue to ask, we will receive; to seek, we will find, and to KNOCK, the doors will be opened once again. God will transform our COVID-19 CONFINEMENT into eternally beautiful COVID-19 CONNECTIONS!
We will SEE the captives set free and the lost come to Christ as we keep looking to the One who does NOT disappoint.
Watching and waiting with you, your sister in Christ,
